First, I’m going to break down three takeaways from today’s Vault 7 release that every American citizen should be aware of. Then I’ll give you actionable advice for how you can protect yourself from this illegal overreach by the US government — and from the malicious hackers the government has empowered through its own recklessness.

Takeaway #1: If you drive an internet-connected car, hackers can crash it into a concrete wall and kill you and your family.
I know, this sounds crazy, but it’s real.

“As of October 2014 the CIA was also looking at infecting the vehicle control systems used by modern cars and trucks. The purpose of such control is not specified, but it would permit the CIA to engage in nearly undetectable assassinations.” — WikiLeaks .

We’ve known for a while that internet-connected cars could be hacked. But we had no idea of the scope of this until today.
